Yeah, I noticed that too. Another Arians mystery...why he insists on using the mediocre-at-best Johnson so much is beyond me. It's different if he's mostly on the other side of the play, but it always seemed like he was the one making the key block that was going to make or break the play.

yep, you know if we had a REAL fullback this maybe wouldn't have happened. if it was someone like dan kreider leading the charge instead, clay matthews would have been pancaked... ah damn you arians.

john kuhn is the greatest packer player to ever strap on the cheese.

how many times did you hear his name called in the game? how many pancake blocks did he have?

0

pretty hard for d johnson to make the block when matthews diagnoses the play and the DE gets skinny to make a spectacular play (which allowed clay to make the hit).

The single most crucial play to the game?

After multiple viewings of the game I believe it was your first punt in the 1st quarter. Williams fumbled the punt but recovered. If the Steelers had recovered that fumble I think it would have been a very different game.

I tend to agree with this analysis.

Well we still had the 2 minutes and could've drove down the field. It felt like Ben and Wallace were not on the same page. On 2nd down Wallace had his hands up showing that he didn't know the play.

Those are the things u usualy prepare for SH........dont wanna wait till the big dance to find out how it goes. I think we all thought ,ok 2 minutes, been here before Ben can do it, but it didnt for some reason.

Mendy's fumble was early 4th quarter and I wished the defense could've stopped them, but we do ask a lot from our defense.

i dont think that was too crucial at all. while it woulda been great to recover that muff and go on to score a TD it woulda been nothing more than if we had scored on our opening drive.

the rest of the game was still to be played and the packers got the ball to open the second half.

that mistake there coulda easilly been overcome.

in 10 years, nobody but your die hard steeler and packerfans will even remember that muff.

when i rewatched that game for the 1st time, i said "damn, i totally forgot about that" and then noted how huge that coulda been in possibly changing the outcome.
